"It's just like the story of the grasshopper and the octopus. All year long the grasshopper kept burying acorns for winter while the octopus mooched off his girlfriend and watched TV.

Then the winter came, and the grasshopper died, and the octopus ate all his acorns and also he got a racecar. Is any of this getting through to you?"

Journal Entry: Fri Apr 11, 2014, 10:13 AM

I'm really bored lately, what with burning out on my current games, and being on Easter break with no class for another 2 weeks.

Anyone want an art trade, collab, request, or some sort of point commission? Doesn't matter if you're a watcher, lurker or just stumbled across here. :eager:

About Me:
Postgraduate petroleum geology student and artistic dabbler from the north west of England. I like to keep my mind busy with digital painting, 3D modelling and papercraft. Other interests include history, classic novels, fossil hunting, airsoft and golf.

I'm fascinated with historical military designs, particularly from about 1800-1920 and all the related themes that go with them. The Napoleonic and colonial eras up until WWI and the Interwar period are my favourite areas of inspiration. Aww who am I kidding, WW2 is also very interesting to read up on as well.

I'm very picky over what I like on DA, but admittedly I'm looking for people to watch and give me inspiration. Will also be interested in trades or collaborations with users similarly skilled to myself.

Find me on Steam as Xenon/XenonRay or account ID 'fluoric'. EA Origin account is also named XenonRay. Make sure you note me first though so I know who you are!

Have you ever considered map making like  ~GeneralVyse I have been to the site where Forlorn Horizon is put up their was a map of the empires their right
XenonRay Dec 19, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I have done a few maps in the past, not uploaded here, but I don't tend to have the patience to include enough detail in them. The scenario with Carrovia etc does have a reference map in my gallery although I'm thinking of a radical overhaul of the continents at some point.

Ok is it going to have the countries or the geography or both? by the way I'm liking the new icon
XenonRay Dec 21, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist

A mix of both, but country colours always end up washing over my geography so I'm still looking out for the best way to show them together. The icon's a quick change- just trying it out for a while! ;)
